The Borough of Rumson has six magnificent parks, a crew site, a public boat ramp, and the historic Bingham Hall Community Center.
 
Victory Park is Rumson's flagship park. It is located at Lafayette Street and River Road in the heart of town. This waterfront park boasts a wonderful playground, lovingly donated by a borough family. The bandstand was also restored to its former glory by yet another Rumson family. Victory Park has two tennis courts with lighting, a basketball court with lighting, a bocce court, a sandy beach on the Navesink River, with benches overlooking the river.


Piping Rock Memorial Park is on East River Road, between Carton Street and Ridge Road. Piping Rock has a baseball field and is the practice football field for American Youth Football.  Martello field hosts the Grade 1-4 Girls Lacrosse activities.  Piping Rock also has a playground and two tennis courts (one equipped with a hitting wall) as well as the Keith D. McHeffey Memorial. This park is the beneficiary of the generosity of both the KDM and Martello memorial foundations.

Rogers Park is at the intersections of Church Street, Lafayette Street and Allen Street. A true neighborhood park, Rogers Park has a basketball court and two tennis courts and a playground. It also has a small grass area used for informal local tee-ball and touch football games.


West Park is another small neighborhood park. The park runs along both sides of Rumson Road at the entrance to the Sea Bright Bridge. The north side is an open field and the southern side has a small fenced in playground. Its location adjacent to the Sea Bright Bridge make it a summertime favorite.


Riverside Park is one of the Borough's busiest parks. Renovated in 2005, Riverside Park has two high quality 46/60 Baseball fields that are used as soccer fields in the fall. There is a conveniently located playground to entertain the little ones while their siblings play ball. A walkway along the River has also been installed. Riverside Park is located along the Shrewsbury River at the end of Riverside Drive and Wardell Avenue off of Rumson Road near the Little Silver border.


Meadow Ridge is the largest of the Borough parks. Located on Ridge Road, it spans 23 acres and has three fields, a small playground and a popular walking/jogging path. The three fields are used for soccer, baseball and lacrosse. Forrestdale and RFHRHS use these fields as their home field for some age groups. The path meanders along the edges of the fields and through the woods. Many area residents use the path for their daily exercise.

The outdoor exercise equipment at Meadow Ridge Park is designed to help individuals of all ages and fitness levels enjoy a healthy lifestyle. The equipment is designed to improve cardiovascular health, strengthen muscles and enhance flexibility and balance. Age 14 years and over are allowed on the equipment.
